Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.

During my trip through Ecuador in preparation for my sail across the open Pacific Ocean from Santa Cruz to Hiva Oa in French Polynesia I had the opportunity to stay for a week on Santa Cruz and explore a bit of the island. I managed to get a few images of the main town of Santa Cruz which is Puerto Ayora. The Ecuadorians there are a kind, gentle people who value family very much. This was very apparent to me as I saw many instances of entire families engaged in activities around the town from volley ball to playing with their children in the park. These are the handful of images I captured in the town.
